Histone H2B is one of the 5 main histone proteins involved in the structure of chromatin in eukaryotic cells. Featuring a main globular domain and a long N terminal tail H2B is involved with the structure of the nucleosomes of the 'beads on a string' structure.

See nucleosome, histone and chromatin.

Other histone proteins involved:
H1
H2A
H3
H4

In popular culture

H2B is mentioned in the rap song "pistol pistol" in Obie Trice's remix, saying "a H2B to light your kidneys"
